Taipei, Aug. 28 (CNA) Taiwan's announcement of the relaxation of restrictions on American pork and beef imports "will open the door to greater economic and trade cooperation" between both sides, the U.S. Department of State said Friday.

"We welcome President Tsai Ing-Wen's August 28 statement that Taiwan will move quickly to lift restrictions on imports of U.S. pork and beef," the department said in a statement posted on its website.

The U.S. is looking forward to the timely implementation of these actions, which is expected to provide greater access for U.S. farmers to Taiwan's market, and for Taiwan consumers to U.S. agricultural products, the statement said.

"President Tsai's vision and leadership in removing these longstanding barriers open the door to greater economic and trade cooperation between the United States and Taiwan," it said.    [FULL  STORY]
